Sandra Lee, Instagram


Sandra Lee is returning to work a year after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

The celebrity chef took to Instagram to post a smiley selfie from the car, looking happy and healthy again while on her way to return to set with Bobby Flay.

She captioned the photo, "First day back on set-- am shooting with @bobbyflay. Nice to be with my brother. #foodnetwork #bobbyflay."

Sandra was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015 and underwent a lumpectomy prior to moving forward with a double mastectomy in May.

The Food Network star suffered some complications with her surgery and ended up being rushed to the hospital again in August after suffering from an infection.

However, in September she finally overcame the battle and announced on Good Morning America that she is completely cancer-free.

"I'm coming to share with you that my doctors have said I am cancer free and I am ready to go," she told host Robin Roberts at the time.

Now, Sandra is dedicated to encouraging women to take advantage of medical advancements and seek early detection.

"The researchers and the doctors and the nurses and the other warriors, not just breast cancer for all cancer, that came before us and that sacrificed their lives so that we could have early detection," she said on GMA. "It's only respectful to ourselves and to their work and what they gave up for us to get our tushies in there and get it diagnosed and then cut it out and take care of it."

We are so glad to see she's doing well and getting back to work!
